Protecting Your Eyes From UV Rays

Every day—sunny or cloudy, Spring through Winter—you are exposed to damaging ultraviolet rays. Though you may not realize it, it’s there—UV radiation is invisible to the naked eye.

Did you know…

  • UV light can “sunburn” the eye’s surface and cause benign yellowish growths on the human eye
  • Prolonged exposure to harmful UVA and UVB radiation over time can contribute to serious, age-related eye conditions or diseases
  • These diseases include cataracts and macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60
  • Only lens materials or lens treatments that promise 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays protect your eyes fully from the harmful rays of the sun. Demand 100% UV protection.

To our valued Patients:

To reduce the spread of Coronavirus Covid-19, The College of Optometrists of Ontario has recommended that our office sees urgent care cases only. As a result, we are on an “On Call” status and will see urgent care patients as necessary by appointment. If you have an eye emergency and require urgent care please contact info@bayblooroptometry.com or call the office and state: what your emergency/urgent eye issue is; when the issue began; and any symptoms you are experiencing. For all other inquiries, including new contact lens orders for existing patients, messages may be left in the same manner as above, and will be responded to as soon as possible.

We will be checking voicemail and email daily.

We thank you for your understanding and continued support and wish you all the best in good health.
